Josh Berry has been a pretty impressive figure in the Xfinity Series scene. This is because, he has snatched two wins in the 2021 Xfinity Series season. The first one came at the Martinsville Speedway for JR Motorsports in the #8 car. Meanwhile, the second win came at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for JR Motorsports’ #1 car.
It is also worth mentioning that he has continued his good run of form outside NASCAR. To be precise, he has been making a splash in the Late Model category, with a few wins under his belt. Suffice to say, his Xfinity boss, Dale Earnhardt Jr, has been taking notice and likes what he is seeing.

That was exciting for me to come somewhere new and the Goodyear family, here, they have put in a lot of effort to fix this place up and build it up. You can tell they are very passionate about what they’re doing.”

Additionally, he will partner Noah Gragson, Justin Allgaier and Sam Mayer. Of course, there is a fifth driver in the line up, in the form of limited-schedule driver and team owner, Dale Earnhardt Jr himself.
